Union Creative: Code Geass C.C.Union Creative: Code Geass C.C.

Howdy doo, everyone! Time for another review! Today I am taking a look at the latest addition to my Code Geass collection. Let's check out this new figure of C.C. by Union Creative. Click any picture to go to the image page and view it in full resolution.

Not much assembly is required here. Just attach the base to her feet and she is ready to go. Here we have C.C. in her signature strait jacket. She is in her classic pose of having her arms crossed while just slightly floating off the ground due to the magic of Geass power.

I've never purchased a Union Creative figure and was curious about what the overall quality would be based on some comments I have seen on their past products, but this figure looks very nice. Her jacket has a lovely glossy coating and nicely shaded.






This figure is also very nice to look at from the back; not just because she has a cute butt. This is a figure that would get good use out of an auto-rotating turntable.

C.C. is known to usually have a stoic or expressionless face, which adds a certain allure to her. The face on this figure represents C.C. very well. The eye decals and mouth are nicely detailed with a bit of gloss added to her lips. Combining this expression with her pose along with the floating and spreading of her hair gives the figure an enigmatic and somewhat mystic feel in its presentation.

The hair is one of my favorite aspects of this figure. It is beautifully shaded with vibrant variants of lime green. The hair stands are well defined and evenly fanned out giving it a naturally floating look.

While this figure looks nice, it is not without its flaws. The first flaw I noticed were the belts of the strait jacket. You will notice that the straps do not have any holes. That is a key detail missing from these structures because those holes would be needed for them to be fastened. While not as predominant as the straps, the buckle is also has a small flaw with the center not being hollowed out. How else would you slip the strap through if the buckle with just one solid piece with no opening to slip through? These are not terrible flaws, but they hard not to notice.

There are also a few noticeable seams on her body. You saw one the seam around her shoulder in the previous picture. There are also seams on the back of her thighs. Fortunately, all these seems are not that visible from the main viewing angle. The seams on the thighs can only be seen from behind. So this is negligible to a certain degree.

But the biggest flaw is the base. All we have here is a clear plastic disc with nothing on it. An elaborately designed base is not something I would call necessary for a figure. But considering the retail price of 13,800 yen, this bare minimum of a base leaves a bad taste in my mouth. It could have at least had the show's logo on it or something. So I'm afraid I'm gonna have to take off a chunk of points for this. No disrespect, Union Creative, but this just feels lazy for the price.

This figure is not perfect, but it is not nearly as bad as several of the comments I have read say it is. While a bit pricey for the overall quality, the quality of this figure aside from the base is very nice. I would consider this a worthy and welcomed addition to my Code Geass collection.

Thank you for taking the time to read this article. I hope it has helped you in your decision whether or not to add this figure to your collection. This is currently still available at a variety of shops. Tokyo Otaku Mode currently has a 20% off coupon available you could use to get this figure if you wish. If you weren't already convinced to buy it already, here is another picture of her butt to persuade you.

Nice review. The Union Creative indeed has always some kind of flaws. Where they exceed is in the way some parts are painted like the clothing of Hangyaku. I hope that the quality of their figures are more constant. The comments on the product page differs a lot and that gives me the indication that their quality for each figure still differs. It reminds me of this review made by Maakie BLOG #40059 where mine figure has total different flaws than the one reviewed. Also i think that they did a good job with Hangyaku. The base is somewhat plain, but with light beneath it (like in your last picture but i would recommend lightblue :D ) will give some nice effect and display options. Also her pose and paintjob are looking great.

I pretty much agree with your review and am glad you reviewed- a few people were disappointed in the figure and became overly negative on the figure's page, when in reality it is a pretty good figure of C.C..

Great review, gotta be honest at first glance she looks like a 10 but seeing all the errors you pointed out are sort of saddening.
Never been huge on CC so I guess it's for the best lol

Solarstormflare (Hace 4 meses) #45379750Nice review! Trust me though; the plastic circle is an upgrade from the base i have for a union creative figure; a massive black triangle

That is true. I've seen those bases and they are less attractive than this in my opinion.

whobdaplaya (Hace 4 meses) #45375181Thanks for the pics and review!
Waiting for mine to arrive - only decent CC figure in her straitjacket.


It is weird that there are so many figures of C.C., but only a few with this iconic outfit. :o
